It’s software that runs in your browser rather than installed on your computer.

The main difference in business model is that it’s (generally) billed on subscription or level of usage.

You don’t buy a CD, you rent an access.

The most well know SaaS service would probably be Google Apps, or even Gmail as a whole.

SaaS offers other solid arguments like mobility, security and scalability.

If SaaS is so special, it’s probably because within 5 years, a vast majority of software will be delivered that way.
